This book spans almost two centuries - from the battle of Trafalgar to the Gulf War - and is enriched with eye-witness accounts and contributions from naval experts around the globe.

'The Battleships' examines the rapid evolution of firepower and battleship design from canvas to steam, timber to steel, muzzle loading cannon to 18-inch guns, and beyond, to rocket launchers and missiles. As the spearhead of colonial expansion and in defence of the great empires the battleship reigned supreme, but as each new generation of man-o-war came off the slipways, the world became a more dangerous place.

Probing the evolution, deployment and effectiveness of one of the most controversial weapons ever created, 'The Battleships' explores the momentous role they played in shaping the modern world.
